Jesus clearly stated we the Church are to be the salt and light to the world. But Church fails to live every word that Jesus said and mixes itself with the culture it is in. A trend that the world picks up, 20 years down the line Church has made clear that it picks it up so much so that there is no difference between world and the Church. This was not what Jesus intended for the Church. If we do not live upto the standards that Jesus set for us and live as per His word then who will the world go to for help when their false foundations will give away ? It is very easy to dilute the gospel but eventually it will bite us.The one thing Jesus will consider when we all stand infront of Him in if we have conformed to His image. So how can that take place if we do not consider where we have diluted His word, where we live by flesh and where we do not live holy?
